    Default A feat

    A porter climbs up a ladder with a Royal Enfield bike balanced on his head.

    The video would have been more impressive, or perhaps more believable if the video showed the entire bike in the scene. There could have been some trickery or shenanigans with rope assisting in the stunt. The upper part -top- of the bike was out of the picture during the stunt. But amazing things do happen from time to time. but I am left to some skeptisim on this...Dennis

    I seem to have mistakenly linked to a different video from the one I saw. That one shows the entire thing very clearly. Will try to find and post that one.

    A much cleaner view. As is apparent, there are no ropes or other assistance.

    That is a much better video. Appears he did it. Amazing. I saw a youtube video of a young girl destroying a tree with her fists. I think she was a 9 yr old Russian girl who displayed incredible hitting power with her fists. Most likely she would demolish most teenage boys with fisticuffs..Dennis

    She’s pretty good, fast & ferocious. But that tree was spraying wood powder!

    Yea thats her. The internet and youtube from time to time present things that look real. There is a lot of fake stuff as you well know that can be see on youtube. Things that appear amazing. Like a magic show. I am always skeptical. That little buzz saw of a girl destroying that tree is most certainly fake. I am still skeptical of the guy carrying the motor bike up the ladder on his head. That bike must weigh hundreds of pounds. But maybe he did it - I just don't know but I have great doubt. Kind of like when I watch the Fake news media (CNN, MSNBC). I know its fake but hey I need entertainment....Dennis

    My first thought was "Termites". I've chopped wood that was like that. Pretty soft and "dusty", almost spongy really. Still wouldn't want to spar with her though. My old bones are getting pretty spongy and termite riddled....

    That looks like pretty soft wood. And maybe they sped the camera up a little. I don't think you would need any trickery beyond that though.

    Definitely some kind of softwood tree but that powder and the way the wood was breaking up looked to me as if it had been seriously weakened by insect invasion. Pine bark beetles around here cause big swaths of forest to die in a season or two. There's many different bugs that burrow in, eating the wood and pooping "dust".
